Complete Grasscutter

Postby Stan Sakai » Sun Mar 31, 2019 20:29 +0000

Yes, IDW will be printing Grasscutters 1&2 in a single oversized edition. It will not be in the Artist Edition format, but in a slipcased hardcover. As in the case of the AE, though, the art will be scanned from the black & white originals in color so you can see all the imperfections, white outs,etc.

Also, Walter Simonson and I will be the guests at the IDW VIP dinner at Comic-Con. I don’t know the details of this yet.

This is great. I can't wait to get the book. I love the artist edition books. I have the 2 Usagi artist edition books plus the one Rosa Uncle Scrooge (first half of His Life and Times).

Will be interesting to read Grasscutter from the scanned original art. :D

That sounds like a nice edition. With all these great books and the upcoming color reimaginings, I think I'm going to need another bookcase to hold all my Usagi (okay, I already need another bookcase anyway :lol:).

That slipcase/book design looks amazing! Can't wait to get my hands on this in a few months. Will there be editions with original artwork or anything else special like the other IDW Artist Select releases?

Neato. Loved the gallery editions, so it's exciting to get something similar!

The Complete Grasscutter will run more than 460 pages, including the cover gallery, story notes, and other extras. They will all be signed. There will also be an Edition with an original drawing and one for the VIP dinner.

However, the story will be the same, so don’t expect any new twists when you read it.
